140 series CL-Class Coupés, 1996 - 1998

In June 1996 the type designations for the coupés were changed once again. The change of the name was not an end in itself but should show that the large coupés had taken over the role of the pacemakers for a whole family of coupés. The CL coupés were also slightly modified in terms of style: Externally visible were the revised bumpers with the integrated sensors for the ultrasonic parking aid "Parktronic" being part of the standard delivery programme. Through this parking aid the backup markers were no longer needed in the rear wings. Other remarkable novelties were xenon headlights with dynamic headlight-range adjustment, a tempomat with speed-limiter, standard sidebags as well as a seat identification system for the front passenger seat.

Assembly of the CL models ceased in September 1998, almost six years after the commencement of standard production. Afficionados of the big Mercedes-Benz coupé will have to be patient as the successor model is not scheduled to be launched until the fall of 1999. A total of 26,022 units of 140 series coupés were produced at the Sindelfingen plant.
